80% of employers agree that, regardless of their major, all college students should acquire broad knowledge in the liberal arts and sciences.

In their first semester, scholars refine their professional persona in HUM 3960: Humanities Career Compass. This 1-credit course is designed for newly-declared Humanities majors to begin exploring both their personal and academic passions, while equipping them with the tools to connect these passions to potential career paths.

Scholars will learn the art of professional communication, attire, etiquette and cleaning up their digital dirt so that they are poised for future internships, scholarship applications, and professional engagement with community members in their second semester. Scholars are designated a career advisor to work with throughout the year.

This course made me question why I was studying what I was and actually helped me turn towards a focus that makes me excited to be in school again. The tools given in this class will help me in my job search and in interviews. This is and will be the most beneficial class I've ever or will ever take. What this class has done for me is the difference of my entire future. I loved this class and would highly recommend it to every student, whether they know what they want to major in or not, because it helps you to focus on aspects you truly would love to work in.
